Today we are releasing AWS Amplify, an Open Source library under Apache 2.0 for developers looking to build cloud connected applications with JavaScript on web or mobile platforms. AWS Amplify is designed to give a declarative interface to client developers looking to perform common actions using cloud services in a scalable and secure manner. These new capabilities allow developers writing JavaScript applications to programmatically apply best practices with common abstractions, ultimately resulting in faster development cycles. Along with the release of AWS Amplify, we are also releasing a comprehensive CLI experience which is fully integrated with AWS Mobile Hub. This CLI experience is designed for developers who are either building applications from scratch or enhancing existing projects with features for the AWS cloud.
